In Python, you can convert an integer to a string by using the str() function. For example:

x = 5
y = str(x)

The output of this code will be the string "5".

Another way to convert integer to string is using the format() function.

x = 5
y = "{}".format(x)

This method can be useful when you have to place the value of an integer variable in a string.
